About Judith Fick

Together with my boyfriend and pets (2 dogs and a cat) I live in Wassenaar. I adopted my first rescue dog in Holland, originally from Spain. Because of this rescue dog I started wondering why she behaved like she did and how I could influence that behaviour.

Qualifications and work

I studied for dog trainer at O&O, ‘Nederlandse Vereniging voor Instructeurs in Hondenopvoeding en -opleiding’ and at Dogvision ‘Kynologisch opleidingscentrum’. I’am studying Dog Behavioural Therapy. This is a 4 year bachelor education. Dog trainer of behavioural therapist is not a protected profession, so anyone can say there are.

I do dog behavioural tests at DOA, the animal shelter in Amsterdam and at the Leonberger breed club.

Who am I as a person

I like to have a nice connection with my customers and people I work with. When we work together on training your dog, I look at the total situation and I try my best to advice you.  I like dogowners who try to understand their dog and want to put effort, money and time in. Who understands the wellbeing of the dog. I use a positive training method, but I am also very clear towards the dog. I believe a dog deserves as much freedom as he can handle. It is our job to take care of the animal the best we can. Because changing behaviour takes time of the dog ánd owner, I love to be involved as much as possible. Only repetition will cause changes. Aftercare is always included in my offer. Do you like the way I see it, than I would love to meet you!
